A movie you must go see. July 1, 2008

Wall-E.   We saw it on Saturday night and really really enjoyed it.  Not only is it a cool  and funny

Pixar movie, but it can also be used for teaching purposes.  Directly or indirectly, the movie touches on:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Obesity
  • Agriculture
  • Sustainability
  • “Going green”

In my opinion, it’s pretty much the best thing ever.  Go see it.

    As far as what this movie hits, I didn’t really think to myself, “Hey, this movie is trying to teach me something.” In fact, the more I started thinking that the 2nd time I saw it, the less I liked it. I think it’s better off just being fantastic entertainment. Although I’m pretty sure some hippies were involved in the making.

    Former hippies for sure.

    Last weekend Lyndell and I (from Houston) and Debra (from Dallas) went to see WALL*E together. This could’ve been a very, very bad movie, one so weighed down by its own incredible special effects that the story line would’ve been crushed. Not so. But its humor is much more subtle than that of some other Pixar films.

    Lyndell remarked afterward on the lack of integration of the robots on the Axiom, which he thought humorous — no wireless control by the autopilot, for example. “Well,” I replied, “if the robots WERE more integrated, then we wouldn’t have had a PLOT, now would we?” 🙂

    The rendering is so realistic you forget it’s computer generated. I was amazed by the robotic grace.

    If you over analyze, this movie had the most impossible setting of Pixar’s movies. A mostly self-contained cruise ship with a five year itinerary operating smoothly for generations and centuries, while the same couldn’t be done on earth is inconsistent.

    But it’s an amazing lady and the tramp, beauty and the beast, last man on earth meets first woman on earth story.

    I think the idea was not that a self-sustaining economy COULDN’T be done on earth, but that it WOULDN’T be done on earth, by BNL. And, uh, did you catch the two giant-sized WALL*E robots that were compacting trash and sending it out into space (including our heros, very nearly)? That’s what kept the BNL’s Mass Consumerism 2.0 “self-sustaining”: the resulting garbage wouldn’t pile up on the Axiom as it would on and around the earth.

    That said, there are still inconsistencies and improbabilities big enough to drive a D’deridex-class Romulan Warbird through. 🙂

    Oh yeah, besides being “an amazing lady and the tramp, beauty and the beast, last man on earth meets first woman on earth” story, it’s also a wicked “a three-hour tour, a three-hour tour” story. 😀
